Mike James

The thing is, you are joking. The other thing is, he's better than 99.9% of undrafted players. I don't know the complete list, but he could very well be top 10... especially if you consider his entire career.

Mike James jokes have a time and place (they are becoming incredibly not funny anymore), and this actually isn't one of them.

Fun Fact: The Warriors have SEVEN UNDRAFTED PLAYERS on their current roster. Azabuike, Raja Bell, Chris Hunter (D-League), Anthony Morrow, Anthony Tolliver (D-League), C.J. Watson, Reggie Williams (D-League). Three of them were on a D-League team when the season started (and they've also had a couple others called up for a 10 game contract and subsequently dropped this year). Don Nelson is making a serious push for D-League Coach of the Year!

Here's the Hoop Doctors list for top ten current undrafted players in the league: http://thehoopdoctors.com/online2/2009/05/the-top-10-undrafted-nba-players/



10. Janerro Pargo
9. Kelenna Azibuke
8. Jamario Moon
7. Udonis Haslem
6. Raja Bell
5. Bruce Bowen *(this was made in 2009)
4. Mike James (hah)
3. Jose Calderon
2. Brad Miller
1. Ben Wallace

If it's all time, then it still has to be Big Ben as the #1. Multiple DPOY awards gives you the nod over anything that the other players did. Starks would probably slide in 2nd.
And if this list was made this year, Morrow would be top 5, and he could easily end up being seen as a top 3 undrafted player all time.

I also dont get the Mike James "joke" thing. The guy is a very decent player. Career average 11,9 ppg. In Toronto he was very good. Something like 20ppg 5 apg. What up with the jokes? I can understand when you make fun of say Scalabrine or Smush sack of **** Parker, but...can anybody explain me The Mike James Joke thing?

Its because of how highly Mike James thinks of himself and people act like they buy fully into what he says.

Brad Miller was the only undrafted allstar I think? But I still say Ben Wallace.

All time I'd have to go with Wallace, currently I love what I'm seeing from Wesley Mathews, undrafted and already a starter. Doesn't back down from anyone, nice shooter, he's going to be good.
